Case study: Bungalow

The challenge

Bungalow wanted to attract potential customers who would be visiting the areas where they offer their services. 

The solution

dslx created content that ranked the ‘best neighborhoods’ in each city Bungalow operates in. We wanted it to bring actual value to readers not focusing too much on injecting keywords throughout the text but on making it a useful resource for those considering moving to the area. 

Our team performed thorough research of the cities that included insider knowledge from various locals. To be able to rank these cities fairly, dslx created a system where each city neighborhood was ranked from 1 - 5 on categories like Shopping & Restaurants, Schools, Walkability, and other highly relevant factors readers want to know when considering moving to a new area. This helped ensure the content was as accurate as possible. Here’s what our research ended up looking like.

By focusing on providing value for users looking for high-intent keywords, dslx and Bungalow managed to increase page visits substantially in just ten months.
